"Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time He may exalt you." - 1 Peter‬ ‭5:5-6‬


We are instructed by God to behave, speak, and live with an attitude of humility toward one another. “Humility” means that I consider the other person as more important than myself and act accordingly.


The command, “clothe yourselves” with this attitude means that even if I don’t feel that way, I am to take this attitude. I am to “put it on,” like a suit.


Of course, someone will say, “Acting like the other person is more important than I when I don’t really feel that way would be hypocritical.”


It’s not hypocritical to “put on“ humility because the other person is, as a matter of fact, more important than I am, whether I feel that way or not!

We are commanded by God to behave in accordance with reality, not in accordance with our own confused, selfish and sinful hearts. Our feelings are often wrong; God is always right.


And taking an attitude of true humility will quickly change my heart to agree with the reality, so that God will be able to use me in His Kingdom.


Lord, forgive me for thinking that I’m more important than someone else. Bring the attitude of my heart into line with what You have declared to be true and help me to live as Your servant, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
